"One must strive a little for the epic, old boy."
Meet Henri, Gustave, and Phillippe, three veterans of the Great War, living in retirement at a home for soldiers. When not admiring the local ladies or undermining the nuns who run the home, they can be found on their favourite terrace plotting adventure and escape. These three unlikely companions help each other face that great leveller, age, with grace and good humour........... and an occasional spat between cantankerous old codgers.
Join the Chatsworth Players for an open-air production of the delightful "Heroes". Written by Gerald Sibleyras and translated into English by Tom Stoppard, this award-winning comedy (Olivier Award, 2006) is the perfect way to spend a summer evening.
Bring your own seating - low backed chairs and rugs. Picnics are welcome. We will go ahead in the event of rain, so make sure you dress appropriately. Please don't bring umbrellas as they block other’s view — we recommend you bring macs or cagoules.
